CET Beijing Janterm Chinese Studies Program
The condensed Janterm gives students all the advantages of a full semester—intensive classes, a language pledge, a local roommate—but in a quarter the time. Students can attend Janterm on its own, or let it lead the way into spring. Whatever students choose, Janterm just about guarantees that they'll arrive on campus in the spring all warmed up and ready to soar.
The program is based at Capital Normal University. The CNU campus is resource-packed and close to public transportation. The CET buildings have been recently renovated—the classrooms are bright, modern, and equipped with air purifiers.
More information on the program can be found here.
